Romney Wins Michigan Straw Poll

No surprise here, not like Herman Cain's Florida victory Saturday. Mitt Romney won the Republican straw poll in his home state of Michigan by picking up more than half of the 681 votes cast. Even though he said he wasn't actively participating in any straw polls, Romney's 51 percent showing still trounced runner-up Rick Perry's 17 percent by a 3-1 margin. Both candidates flew here to give speeches Saturday. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was the choice for the vice presidential nominee with 23 percent of the votes.
